Virgin Mobile's LG Optimus V 3G Connection Problems - Try This Easy Fix
Bummer! You just got the fancy new LG Optimus V from Virgin Mobile and now it seems the service is kaput. Not so (in most cases). Just like with your laptop or desktop computer, sometimes there is just a minor something that goes haywire for an unknown reason. The usual solution is just to find a way to reset it.
I am going to share with you an easy fix to 3G data connection problems that works most of the time when I stop being able to surf the web, get my email, and download apps (aka, all of the fun stuff).
Keep in mind that there are times when nothing can be done because it is the network that has gone down. I have the advantage of having two Virgin Mobile phones in my household that both have current service, and I can always check if it is a network outage by seeing if both phones are having the same problem at the same time. If they are, then it is probably the network and not the phone.
If one is having the problem, however, and the other is not, then the problem probably is with the handset.
Ready for This?
This simple routine will turn off the cellular networking completely and consequenty reset it when turned back on from scratch. It is like a total hard reset for the data and cell connections.
Try it - I've had almost 100% success with it doing it just once. Sometimes, you may need to try the process twice. If it takes more than twice, there is probably something else going on.
